    Why did you choose the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno Family Medicine Residency?:When you are interviewing for different medical programs, you constantly hear about this “click” you are going to feel with a program no matter how cliché it sounds. Well, that was my feeling with UNR’s family medicine residency. It really gave me a sense of community and family that I didn’t feel in my other interviews. It is a great program that provides flexibility to do the electives you desire, well also being affiliated with a University which provides great didactic learning opportunities. I’m so happy to have matched here and to start my new life back in Reno!
